Hijab Barbie And Social Coercion

This week, Mattel introduced a new Barbie doll, modeled after Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad – the first member of Team USA to compete in a hijab. The toy, which hits store shelves next year, is part of a “Sheroes” line that also pays tribute to gold medal winning gymnast Gabby Douglas, writer/director Ana Duvernay and other prominent women in the arts.

“I hope that little girls of color across the heartland will be inspired [by her Barbie toy] to embrace what makes them unique,” Muhammad said.

    Does Aileen Wuornos get her own doll next?

    Hey! That’s an idol she is holding. I thought Muslims were against idolatry?

  • Tooth&Claw

    I notice Muhammad is wearing a kimono. Cultural appropriation much?

    • Shebel

      She sees it as Cultural Subjugation.
      This is OK if you are a Muslim.

  • Shebel

    I did not know that Black was the Colour of ISAM

  • Clausewitz

    Once upon a time you had to win a gold medal to be on the Wheaties box. Now you just have to be a racist, leftist Jihadi.

  • She did nothing and got a doll out of it.

    Now one knows the worth of Barbie dolls. Let’s highlight mediocrity, girls!

    The Doll is WHITE except for that suntanned White face.
    Just make the nose and lips smaller.

    Her comment about “little girls of color” being inspired by that thing is profoundly ignorant. Why should they be? What has wearing a hijab got to do with skin colour? And what about “little girls of color” who have been repressed and terrorized by the ideology symbolized by that headrag? Funny how no one who supports idiocy such as this seems to give a damn about them.

    And then there’s this, at the end of the article – “Mattel seems to be acting with good intentions”. No, they’re not. No one who actively promotes symbols of totalitarian ideologies is acting with “good intentions”. They know exactly what they’re doing, and they do not deserve the benefit of the doubt.

    The joke is on the Muslims for making a big deal about a hijab clad Barbie. The doll was invented by a Jewish woman Ruth Handler and was named Barbie after her JEWISH daughter Barbara. Yup the Mo’s are gushing over a “sons of monkeys and pigs” doll.
    Watch how fast they claim the doll converted to the “Religion of Peace”.
    Let me guess – Ken is going to marry Barbie and her younger sister Skipper.

      The wire less phone was invented in Israel . Every time a see an hijab wearing women with a phone I get a little chuckle that islam is so backwards
      that is hasn’t invented anything for over 500 years while very few books are translated into Arabic.
      When a muslim tried to brag about how 3 of the last 7 Nobel prizes was to a muslim…..but they forget to mention that 2 Prizes were by women that wrote books about islam oppression under sharia while one survived being shot in the face and left for dead .

      How sad that this Master-Race has to rely on the jews and non-muslims for all of their modern products where they haven’t even improved the paper clip or pen .

    For my next venture: I propose a Honor Killing Barbie, head and the rest of the merchandise shipped separately.
    OR: We could do a Stoned in The Town Square Barbie, sold in a dirt filled landscaping pottery of your choice; rocks and stones purchased separately.

    Ken Barbie can be purchased costumed in Islamic garb with a blooded scimitar.

    Please note the ongoing theme which explains why Muslims and Politicians use the term Racism and Racists for those they perceive as attacking their faith.

    Several years back I went to a Middle east website that was well respected as the voice of islam. It was in arabic but had the Language Translator where I read part of the quran and the accounts of muhamads life .
    No matter how many muslims call me a liar…..I read the account from the quran where muhamad made it clear that islam was the faith for non-whites ( arabs back then ) and claimed that only Muslims should own slaves ( Blacks) because islam give them more rights than the jews and Christians ( white religions) .

    ” I hope that little girls of color across the heartland will be inspired [by her Barbie toy] to embrace what makes them unique,”
    A true muslim that knows what i know about muhammads views on blacks and the White religions will always feel a victim of racism and call fellow female muslims as women of Color.
    Linda Sarsour claimed that when she started to wear the hijab she knew what if was like to be a victim of racism now that she’s a person of color.
    Islam still has slavery and the reason Obama and the USA Imams never denounce it is because they know islam allows it on top of the sex-slaves by ISIS where Trudeau refused to rescue them which his Muslims MP’s then clapped and cheered .
    The CBC likes to call Trudeau’s Muslims MP’s as moderates just like they did for Sheema Khan at CAIR even though CAIR was exposed by the FBI for Funding Hamas in 2008 but kept bring on con-job Khan to do dawah about Peace and how good sharia will be for Canada.
